scottsdale real estae arizona: Flooding Damage | Are We at Risk in Scottsdale? - 09/17/18 11:43 AM
Flooding damage - Floods are a common and costly natural hazard in Arizona. Whether caused by heavy rain, monsoons, or the remnants of tropical storms, the results of flooding damage can be devastating. While some floods develop over time, flash floods—particularly common in the state—can occur within minutes after the onset of a rainstorm. Even mountainous areas are at risk for flash flooding, as higher grounds tend to funnel water down into canyons.
